Encoding image only movie failure

Description

I'm trying to overlay a QuickTime? movie that consists of PNG images on top of another movie. I have noticed that FFMPEG doesn't seem to handle such an image-only movie correctly.

To illustrate the problem I have made a simple example movie that has one image sample for each second with a timecode written to it. When I try to convert this movie and change the framerate FFMPEG seems misinterpret samples randomly.

Download the sample movie from http://dl.dropbox.com/u/659266/timecodes.mov and try with the following simple command line:

ffmpeg -y -i timecodes.mov -r 25 timecodes_copy.mov

You will see that FFMPEG will shorten the first sample to 1 frame instead of 25? The sample that should appear on frame 26 will instead appear on frame 2?

Looking forward to some help with this problem!

Best regards / Jorgen

Possibly a muxer problem.

comment:5 Changed 5 years ago by jogga

cehoyos,

I use this mainly to hard-code subtitles into mp4 files. I render the subtitles into a QuickTime? movie as PNG images. I then use the movie overlay filter to superimpose the subtitles movie on top of the original movie. This is a very good solution to get hard-coded subtitles using FFMPEG. Unfortunately the above mention bug has made it impossible to use :-(

I'm really looking forward to a solution to this problem. Do you need some more sample movies?

Just let me know if there's anything I can do to help.

BTW, Thx for your quick reply and handling of this matter!

I had an older version of FFMPEG pulled from my backup where I remember that this was working. Maybe you could compare the code from the subversion repository to easier find the problem.

(Complete, uncut output missing.)

If you believe this is a regression, please find the version introducing it with git bisect.

comment:8 Changed 5 years ago by jogga

But the FFMPEG version I have working is from the SVN repository back somewhere in november 2010. Will I still be able to find that in the GIT repository?

Yes!!!

I found the revision intruducing the bug using git bisect as you suggested.

Unset variable fps for mov and mp4 muxer, they support it
but timestamps must start at 0 currently, and this causes sync
problem.

It seems like something changed in the mov and mp4 muxer.

How do we continue to solve this bug?

comment:12 Changed 5 years ago by jogga

Now I have compiled a version that can encode the movie correctly by enabling the AVFMT_VARIABLE_FPS flags for the mov and mp4 muxers.

I still can't get the movie overlay to work as expected. When I'm running a command like:

ffmpeg -y -i /Users/jogga/Movies/skiing.m4v -acodec copy -s 640x360 -vcodec libx264 -vpre slow -vpre ipod640 -crf 22 -threads 0 -vf "movie=/Users/jogga/Movies/skiing_subtitles.mov:f=mov, pad=640:360:0:286:0x00000000[subtitles];[in][subtitles] overlay=0:0:1[out]" /Users/jogga/Desktop/Slaskmappen/skiing_subtitled.m4v

it still skips the empty samples at the beginning of the skiing_subtitles.mov file and everything gets out of sync.

This is the output from the above command:

Thanks for adding the sample movie back again cehoyos. I accidentally removed it from my dropbox.

michael, just let me know if you need any further samples or anything to solve this bug.

comment:15 Changed 5 years ago by michael

  • Resolution set to fixed

The frame rate changing should be working now

comment:16 Changed 5 years ago by jogga

Hi michael,

It now works when changing the frame rate for a single file like in the example at the top above. But when I try to use the movie overlay filter it still doesn't work. The empty samples at the beginning aren't handled correctly.

I will file a new bug for the movie overlay filter. Hopefully it's easy to fix now that you found out what was wrong for the single file case.
